The Red Squirrel Team comprised of Cosima, Marlowe, Anaya, Savi, Charlotte and former Falkner girl Aurelia has been set up to work to protect the UK’s endangered red squirrels. The team had a terrific visit to parliament this week, accompanied by Cosima and Marlowe’s grandfather, former government minister Anthony Nelson. The team had put together a petition asking for more government action to save the red squirrels. Specifically they want more government support for grey squirrel population control (as this invasive species from North America drives out indigenous red squirrels) and for the planting of more broadleaf and coniferous trees friendly to red squirrels. The girls collected 480 signatures and presented their petition to Gillian Keegan MP who was very receptive to their concerns and promised to represent them to government.
